Alisa Wolfe

Country of origin:


Type of music generally:



Most recent release, Little Things Unseen, 2000

Alisa Wolfe currently (4/11) seems to have no web presence


Vocally I found myself thinking of Jann Arden, Beth Hart, and even sometimes Janis Joplin with a lighter voice. Alisa's music is hard to compare with others but I would go so far as saying Melissa Ethridge (to an extent). (

Covers/own material:

Own, occasional covers

General comments:

Incredible voice! Her debut album has at least three tracks that showcase her full capabilities as a singer and songwriter...a very promising recording by a truly gifted newcomer! (

Recommended first album:

Little Things Unseen is her debut

I instantly fell in love with her voice though I had to listen to the album a few times before the songs started to grow on me. Alisa's style is hard to pinpoint but it's unmistakable and after awhile songs like "Far Reach Up" and the bluesy "Killing Time" will be stuck in your head for days, and you won't get tired of hearing them. This album has great potential as does the artist, only a few tracks fall short...Alisa covers the Kate Bush classic "Feel It"...I don't feel it, then again you have to hand it to someone to tackle a Bush song! I definitely recommend little things unseen as something you should give a spin! You definitely won't regret it. (
